Characters

Characters are obtainable units in Genshin Impact.

How to Obtain

Characters can primarily be obtained by using Intertwined Fate Intertwined Fates or Acquaint Fate Acquaint Fates (purchased with Primogems though also available through Events, Quests or exchanged monthly for Masterless Stardust Masterless Stardust or Masterless Starglitter Masterless Starglitter at Paimon's Bargains) to perform Wishes. Noelle Noelle is a guaranteed character in the first 10 Wish in the Beginners' Wish.

Other ways to obtain characters include:

Progression

Leveling

Characters gain experience primarily by using Character EXP Materials and completing quests, as well as negligible amounts of experience for defeating monsters.

Ascensions

Characters can be ascended to their next ascension phase once they reach their current max level and the player has the required Adventure Rank. Characters can be ascended up to 6 times (Lv. 90).

To ascend a character, go to the character screen and click on the Ascend button at the bottom-right of the Character Menu. A box will appear, showing which Character Ascension Materials, Local Specialties, and Common Ascension Materials are needed, and the Mora cost required to ascend the character. If there is an item missing, click on it to see various ways to obtain it. See each character's page for the materials needed for each ascension.

Upon reaching the 1st and 4th ascension, the character unlocks their 1st and 2nd passive combat talents respectively. The 3rd passive utility talent (available to all characters, except the Traveler) is already unlocked without any ascensions.

On the 2nd ascension, the character gains a special flat bonus attribute boost, either for one of their base attributes (e.g. the Traveler gains a bonus to their ATK value) or a special attribute (e.g. Ningguang gains a Geo DMG Bonus while Lisa gains an Elemental Mastery bonus). This bonus further increases upon the 3rd, 5th, and 6th ascension.

Ascending characters to their 1st, 3rd, and 5th phase will reward the player with one Acquaint Fate.

Constellations

Each character has a total of 6 Constellations, which are similar to their Passive Talents and increase the effectiveness of the character or add new capabilities.

In order to unlock each Constellation of a character, a player must use a Stella Fortuna for that specific character. Players can obtain a character's Stella Fortuna by wishing a duplicate of the character in Wishes or buying the character from Paimon's Bargains. The Traveler's Constellations are unique in that they are unlocked not through the above systems, but through Archon Quests, Adventure Rank Rewards (Anemo only), by offering Oculi to Statue of The Seven (Electro Only) and Souvenir Shops instead.

Total Materials Required

The total amount of materials required to fully upgrade a character from Level 1 to 90 and all 3 Combat Talents from Talent Level 1 to 10.
